Difficulty Level of Beginner – Time Under 3 hours
Gather Tools and Supplies
Paper or Post Board
Rope or ribbon for hanging wreath
Note: As an alternative to using glue to attach the rosettes to the heart, sew the rosettes. Then sew rosettes to the heart wreath material.
Step 1. Cut Felt Strips and Glue the Heart Wreath
Cut strips of felt fabric to cover the Styrofoam heart wreath. The wreath measures about 9 inches long and 1 inch deep. We used Chili Red felt fabric to cover the wreath.
Wrap and glue felt strips around the heart wreath.
Attach the rope or ribbon to the center of the heart wreath. Wrap the felt strips over the rope. This serves two purposes. First, it reinforces the rope and conceals where the rope was attached to the wreath.
Step 2 Make the Rosettes
Create a swirl template if you do not have one. We used a swirl template we had on hand. Trace the swirl pattern on the felt fabric. We used the Chili Red, Beetroot, and Carmine Rose felt fabrics. If you prefer a Valentine’s Day wreath in a single color, then only use one color of fabric. We like the idea of having a multi-colored red Valentine wreath. It gives much more depth and interest to our decor.
To save time, we folded the felt in half. Then cut the swirl so that we had two fabric pieces. The size of the swirl will depend on the size of rosettes you need. A 4 inch long and 4 inch wide size felt fabric creates a rosette that is about 1 to 1 ½ inches in diameter. A 7 inch long and 7 inch size felt fabric creates a rosette that is about 2 to 3 inches in diameter.
Roll the swirl from the outside of the curve. The outer curve creates the top of the rosette. Once you’ve rolled the rosette, place a straight pin through the bottom to hold the rolled rosette in place. Or you can glue the rosette as you roll the fabric. We rolled the rosette then place a straight pin through the bottom so that we could see the rosette before we glued it. Again as an alternative, you can sew the rosettes so that they maintain their shape and size.
Based on the size of your rosettes, you will need to make several of the rosettes. Our 9 inch wreath has 11 medium to large rosettes with 2 small rosette buds.
Step 3 Glue the Rosettes
Glue the rosettes to the felt fabric covered wreath alternating the various rose colors, if the felt fabric roses are multiple colors.
Step 4 Remove any Loose Lint from the Wreath
Use a lint roll to pick up any loose pieces of glue or felt lint from the wreath. Allow the heart wreath to stand for a few minutes and then you are done!
Adjust this tutorial to suit the size of your Valentine’s Day project. A larger heart wreath will require more rosettes or a larger sized rosette. Keep in mind the scale of the finished project when deciding the rosette size.
